Shortlisted for the Rise Art Prize.
I'm very chuffed to have been shortlisted for the Rise Art Prize. I was one of 160 artists selected from 16,000 globally. I am in the running for the category finalists which will be announced in January.
This is the very cool email I found in my inbox this morning:
'I wanted to let you know that you have been shortlisted for the Rise Art Prize. We reviewed almost 16,000 submissions and chosen a handful (1% to be precise) of artists per region to be shortlisted. Huge congratulations from all the team. This means your work was reviewed by our expert regional judging panel and you are in the running to become one of our regional finalists. And there's a lot to play for. The final judging panel is looking very impressive, with names including Gavin Turk, Harland Miller, Fiona Banner and David Bailey.'
